NeighborImpact Head Start Book Drive

Head Start Book Drive

For the 3rd year in a row, Roundabout Books has partnered with Selco Community Credit Union and NeighborImpact to host the Head Start and Early Head Start book drive for Central Oregon! Our goal is to donate 1,000 new children's books to Central Oregon Head Start families! We are collecting new books for babies and children up to age 5, and we need your help!  NeighborImpact serves 55,000 households annually. They support the Central Oregon Head Start and Early Head Start programs who now serve 786 children, a 75% increase in enrollment over last year! Currently, there are 188 children 0-3 years and 598 children 3-5 years old enrolled in the program. Selco has pledged a $3,000 donation to go towards book purchases for this program, and Roundabout will donate 100 books.

The lists below are designed to offer a sampling of the range of books we are collecting for these families. To make a donation, simply click on a book title and add it to your shopping cart. In the order comments, please note "Book Drive donation."
